Ciara looks stunning in photos published this week in W magazine featuring her 8-month pregnant belly.
The former model turned pop songstress explained in an article accompanying the photo spread that she has been active on photographing herself during her pregnancy to create a new tradition and to make sure she documents most of it.

“My mom and I don’t have a lot of photos of my early years,” she explained to W. “So I decided we should document everything. This is one of those moments you can’t repeat.”
The first time mom-to-be who reveals her due date is any day now, told the magazine that maternity wear has been tough for her this pregnancy.

“Pregnancy has been a great fashion challenge because you can’t wear things that you used to wear but you still want to feel like who you are,” Ciara told W. “I have to pay some credit to my fiancé’s closet, because I have worn probably all of his clothes.”
Ciara announced this January on “The View” that she was pregnant with fiance Future’s baby.
And she has also been going to one of her besties for advice: Kim Kardashian, noting that she’s gotten advice from KimK on “everything from breastfeeding to how a stroller works.”
Ciara adds,“you don’t know your child until they get here, you don’t know their personality.There is a lot of learning to do. I loved that advice.”
In gratitude for the shoot, the “Body Party” singer thanked the mag in a recent social media share.
“Thank You [W Mag] For Documenting One Of The Most Special Times In My Life, In The Most Beautiful Way Possible.” Ciara captioned a photo from the shoot she posted on Instagram.
